I was seven months old when HMAS Sydney was sunk by the German raider Kormoran in November 1941 killing all 645 Australian naval personnel on board including my father. I read this book when it was first published in the mid 70's and it was probably even better second time around. For anyone interested in WW II it has everything: politics, intrigue, heroism, espionage, all on an almost unworldly scale, but for sheer doggedness and dedication to his country and his cause, Bill Stephenson, known as Intrepid, stands like a colossus astride the deadly conflict imposed by Adolf Hitler on Europe and the free world (plus Russia which, while an ally, was hardly "free"). The writer, William Stevenson, is not related to "Intrepid"

Read information about the authorLibrarian Note: There is more than one author in the Goodreads database with this name.
William Stevenson was a British-born Canadian author and journalist. His 1976 book "A Man Called Intrepid" was about William Stephenson (no relation) and was a best-seller. It was made into a 1979 mini-series starring David Niven and Stevenson followed it up with a 1983 book titled "Intrepid's Last Case."
Stevenson set a record with another 1976 book, "90 Minutes at Entebbe." The book was about Operation Entebbe, an operation where Israeli commandos secretly landed at night at Entebbe Airport in Uganda and succeeded in rescuing the passengers of an airliner hi-jacked by Palestinian militants, while incurring very few casualties. The remarkable record in that pre-internet age is that Stevenson's "instant book" was written, edited, printed and available for sale within weeks of the event it described.
